Ribbon Optional

Hello! Guess what? Lindsey is kicking off the fall season with a really fun month of challenges on the Jacksonbelle Embellishments blog. There will actually be five challenges. One for every Tuesday in September, starting today. And, yep, there are fab prizes involved. The Grand Prize winner will receive a $50.00 Gift Certificate to the store! Second Place, $30.00 and Third Place, $15.00! There will be a goodie package going out to ALL winners!!

You must use stamps or other store product as your main focus, and you must email all five of your cards at the end of the five challenges to no later than Thursday, October 1st at midnight (EST). Please check out the blog for more details, and don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have. We sure hope to have you play along!

And now for challenge number one: A One Layer Card!

Okay, I know this may be tough, but let's see if you can follow me. LOL.

1. Make card base with Basic Grey June Bug paper.
2. Slap on rhinestones and Pops stickers.
3. Stamp sentiment.
4. (and this one's optional) Tie on ribbon.

There was A LOT of discussion among the design team as to what qualifies as a one layer card. I'm pretty sure the final answer was: Your card base (stamped as you please), with as many accessories as you'd like. But no more card stock.

Get more gorgeous inspiration from the whole Jbelle Team!
